NISSAN'S EVERYDAY SUPERCAR.
IT is still a year from being on sale yet already the motoring world is getting revved up about the next generation Nissan GT-R.
With a 3.8 V6 twin turbo producing 480 PS being fed through one of the most sophisticated four-wheel drive transmissions yet developed, the GT-R will have the traction to handle the power. Proof of this is its lap time of 7m 38s around the Nurburgring - the old one that is, the famous Nordschliefe, rather than the current one, to post one of the fastest times ever seen for a production car around the tortuous 14 mile track.
The GT-R features driver adjustable suspension, gearbox and stability control settings to tune its dynamic characteristics according to the conditions or preferred style of driving. This adaptability reinforces the central philosophy behind the GT-R of being a supercar for anyone, anytime, anywhere.
Sales of the GT-R will start from March 2009 and European prices and specifications will be announced at next month's Geneva Motor Show.
